In the pursuit of meeting international climate commitments, an important task of mitigating greenhouse gas emissions takes precedence. As an initial stride towards this goal shipowners are increasingly embracing novel technologies. These technologies facilitate the adaptation of engines to operate on versatile blends encompassing natural gas, LNG, hydrogen, and biogas. However, the diversification in fuel composition within these blends introduces variations in fuel quality, thereby posing challenges to the efficient operation of these systems.
To address the complexities associated with such diverse fuel mixtures, achieving optimal performance concerning both fuel consumption and emissions becomes paramount. It is in this context that continuous online engine optimization emerge as an essential tool. By leveraging real-time optimization strategies, operators can dynamically adjust and fine-tune the performance of engines, ensuring that they operate at their most efficient levels across the spectrum of fuel compositions. This not only enhances operational efficiency but also contributes to the overarching objective of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in alignment with global climate commitments.
